    These EE chicks are a little over 6 weeks old and one of them has no tail, and they are sooo different from each other. Size if different, feather shape is different, tail/no tail. I know EE's are not pure bred and will segregate, but these are extreme? I got them from the feed store and they were shipped from Ideal. What do you think??? [​IMG]

    is it a gender thing [​IMG]

    I think it might be an americana and Araucana mix.

    Sundae is a rooster and his tale is going to take longer to come in...
